Atari SysVR4 has Motif...
So, since someone has uploaded a disk image of ASV, let's try to extract it from there. Problem: no Atari emulator that I know of can run it, because it requires perfect Atari TT emulation (MMU+FPU+SCSI and more...).

I tried mounting it in AMIX, no dice, even adding a rdb to the image. Losetup in Linux didn't work either, either I'm getting the partition limits wrong or the UFS they use is something not quite old/44bsd.

Your efforts are welcome! We could get their Mosaic port with that too, I'm fairly certain it'll run in AMIX since after all it's SVR4 all the way ...

Where can the disk image be downloaded from?

Atari System V UNIX - Unofficial Website

Anyone had any luck with this?

We must be getting desperate to resort to Atari Unix ;)

I found this old thread and was able to mount the asv-mark-fixed images root in Ubuntu!

I could mount (one of) the asv-richard image (asv_boot.img) partitions like this:

mount -o ro,loop,offset=149504000,sizelimit=191054848 -t ufs asv_boot.img /media/test

The "file" command gives this info about that partition:
Unix Fast File system [v1] (big-endian), last mounted on /home, last written at Sat Jun 8 04:06:41 1991, clean flag 0, number of blocks 186577, number of data blocks 180288, number of cylinder groups 56, block size 8192, fragment size 1024, minimum percentage of free blocks 10, rotational delay 2ms, disk rotational speed 60rps, TIME optimization

You can extract/copy the X11/Motif-related files from that partition (look in rootshadow/bin/X11). Maybe someone could try mounting the other partitions and trying to run some of the command-line (non-X) binaries on AMIX?

OK I finally got round to looking at all this again... And unfortunately the asv-mark-fixed.dsk I have doesn't have libXm.so ! Plus a few others like libMrm.so . Does anyone have these libraries? It does appear that Atari's SysVR4 binaries work in AMIX, sc for ex loads. I think we can get a mwm / wish desktop this way. If I can get all the files together in the right places, I'll create a big amix pkg and upload it.

Also, the atariunix.com website seems to be down so no access to all that stuff they had over there... I'll try and contact Tenox to see if he has anything stashed away.

atariunix.com seems to be up again now (at least works for me).

Can't add anything that would help, but thanks for trying and it sounds pretty cool if we could squeeze something usable from a competing product :D

Actually archive.org's mirror from last year yielded valid files... some of it good, some not so good. I'm trawling through comp.unix.amiga to see how far some people got with certain packages, especially binutils. I found this bsd43lib that provides some probably useful things.. but needs an assembler. I did get elm to compile and work, so that's one console mail program.

Also a tip: export TERM=xterm when telnetting in and screen works much better. And in screen, editing with vi displays normally, not like from direct telnet.
